The Elemental Odyssey paperback cover

I've been working on getting The Elemental Odyssey ready for Amazon's CreateSpace print on demand service.

Here's the current draft of the paperback cover. It'll be 396 pages, 6" x 9", priced at $14.99.

What do you think?


  1. That looks really amazing, Derek! This is definitely something I would have picked up as a kid, especially since I loved Redwall :)

    Great job and good luck with the paperback!

    YA: Cheat, Liar, Coward
    Adult: Shackled

  2. It looks great. Good use of that fantastic artwork.

  3. Looks great, Derek. Very professional.

  4. That looks really good. I'm still blown away by that airship (which was not how I pictured it), amazing stuff.

  5. Thanks, all!

    Burritoclock, the description has changed a bit since Igor did the cover. His art informed some changes to the design.

  6. Derek,
    I, too, am in the process of publishing with CreateSpace. How was the price determined? By you, CreateSpace, and is there enough profit in it?

  7. Anon, when you go through the CreateSpace process you can set your own price. The system will tell you how much profit there is at each price.
